Just 30 minutes back, I’d setup an rsync server. And thanks to Arindam Biswas who gave me the idea of using rsync for upstream transfer. Setting up an rsync server is very easy. Just create an
/etc/rsyncd.conf with following content:
uid = nobody gid = nobody use chroot = no [content] path = /path/to/content comment = Content
And, now start rsync in server mode with following command:
root@box# rsync --daemon
When done rsyncing kill the daemon process.
